Wonder Woman will officially roll into theaters on Dec. 13, 2019.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed tonight that Warner Bros. has allotted the movie one of its “untitled WB event film” slots. Gal Gadot will return to play the Amazonian warrior but talks with director Patty Jenkins, who directed this year’s successful Wonder Woman stand-alone movie, are still ongoing.
Wonder Woman has quickly become one of DC and Warner Bros.’ most successful properties, both from a critical and box office standpoint. The film has garnered more than $700 million at the global box office and is the highest rated film in Warner Bros.’ DC Universe.
Warner Bros. confirmed this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con that Wonder Woman would be receiving a sequel, but didn’t add anymore information at the time. Jenkins has previously spoken about how if she returned for a sequel, she’d like to make the followup film another period piece. Wonder Woman takes place at the end of World War I.
Other stand-alone DC titles that Warner Bros. currently has in the works include a stand-alone Cyborg movie, Flashpoint, Aquaman, Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, Batgirl, Shazam, Green Lantern Corps and The Batman. Before Wonder Woman’s sequel is released, the heroine will appear alongside Batman, the Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman and Superman (probably) in Justice League.
Justice League will be released on Nov. 17.
